The world of violin making is a highly skilled and intricate one, requiring years of training and experience to master. One luthier who has made a name for himself in this field is Dmitry Badiarov, a renowned master craftsman and author of the book “On Fine Violin Making.” In this article, we will take a closer look at Dmitry Badiarov’s book and the valuable insights it provides into the art of violin making.
Dmitry Badiarov is a highly respected luthier and master craftsman, with over 20 years of experience in violin making. He has trained under some of the most renowned luthiers in the world and has won multiple awards for his work. In addition to creating beautiful violins, Badiarov is also dedicated to sharing his knowledge and experience with others through his book “On Fine Violin Making.”
The book “On Fine Violin Making” by Dmitry Badiarov is a comprehensive guide to violin making with a unique approach. It doesn’t cover basic knowledge, such as step-by-step instructions, tool lists, wood selection, or modern technology like CNC, as these are well-known. Instead, it focuses on the five steps of the “Expert Instrument Maker Business Blueprint™:
Each of these steps is split into actionable components. For example, the first step, Sound, is divided into five areas of knowledge: T.O.N.E.S. (Treatises, Original, Natural, Easy, Sketch). This shows that music and musical instruments are not just commodities, but cultural heritage that’s subtler than technical specs and helps find one’s unique artistic voice in this millennia-old culture.
The other four steps are also divided into actionable components, giving the reader a complete picture of a successful instrument-making workshop. This should enable them to implement everything and dramatically increase their chances of success. The author offers all of these blueprints for FREE as readers’-only bonuses.
The book is rich in inspiring stories from the author’s life and the success stories of luthiers who were trained by him over the past five years.
Dmitry Badiarov’s book “On Fine Violin Making” is a valuable resource for anyone interested in learning more about the art and craft of violin making. It provides detailed instructions and helpful tips that can be used by both beginners and experienced luthiers.
